Great for upright riding

        Comments about Nashbar FC1 Saddle - Men's or Women's:

        For much of my riding - 20-50 miles at high effort on pavement or other hard surfaces - this seat would be too wide, soft, and bulky. I have recently purchased a more upright bike that I use for birding and wildlife observation, and this seat is excellent for that purpose. The bike came with a big, fat, spring loaded seat that looks comfortable, but is anything but (at least for those who are used to riding on a thinner profile saddle). A good saddle for road or fitness riders who might want to get into combining cycling with observational activities.

            This saddle is fine, but given the description about padding I was expecting to be softer and more comfortable than it is. I am still using it, but with the old gel seat cover I was using on my older bike, which I'd be hoping to get rid of.

              I am using this through the winter on the rollers as I need to sit longer in the saddle without stretching my legs. Works perfectly for this.

                Comfortable saddle. Sits well with my sit bones. Cut out works well. A little heavy for a road bike if you're a weight weenie, but as I age I prefer comfort over ridiculously low weight as you'll never notice an extra fifty grams while moving along the roadway, but you will notice it if your saddle is quite uncomfortable. I just bought a second for another bike build and am confident it will serve me well. Thanks Nashbar.

                    before you spend $$ on an expensive saddle try this one. i bought the women's model for the wider rear build of the padding..and the wider and deeper cutout. seems to answer BPH issues of harder narrower seats. really worked for me.. bought for all three bikes i regularly ride..and one for the bike i use on rollers over the winter.

                      Entering biking on a shoe string budget I found a great bike that the previous owner had for three months but just didn't like the fit. I love the bike, except for the seat. The Nashbar seat was the fix! What a difference and then I learned later from friends the previous owners issue was the seat! More padding than I expected but its not too much!

                        I have purchased two of these seats for two bikes. They are a good quality seat as far as I'm concerned. The numbness that used to happen no longer does due to the recessed area relieving pressure. I am very satisfied with the quality and comfort. It has good padding.

                          I have put this seat on 3 bikes so far. I use it for commuting, trail/mountain biking, and for just tooling around.

                          My best experience with it is on my fatbike. This seat adds that little bit of extra comfort to make the bike perfect.
